Meeting Mark Armiento at one of his “Life Balance Workshops” at St. John’s University was by far one of the best things that happened to me throughout my college experience. During my one-on-one meetings with him, I was able to make huge transformations in my life that once seemed unchangeable. From working out family differences and dealing with closure, to finding my voice, I’ve learned to better my interpersonal relationships in every aspect. Mr. Armiento has helped me grow mentally and spiritually by giving me the tools of meditation and visualization which made a tremendous impact on my life. In the sport of track and field, which to me is 90% mental, focus is vital and not always the easiest thing to do. But with the knowledge of meditation and visualization it comes easy. Meditation has enhanced my spirituality and the process of visualization has given me the collegiate career that I literally dreamt of.

The growth that I’ve endured within the two years of knowing Mr. Armiento is unbelievable. I am a living testament of Mr. Armiento’s work and the experience that I’ve had with him is one that I would recommend to anyone who wants a better life.” “I just wanted to say thank you for all your love and support, all your help and just being so wonderful to me! ?

I don’t know what the end result would have been without you but I know I’m a whole better person because I know you. I end my season with no regrets and I am so grateful to God for the honor of being an Olympian. Thank you and love you.
